Lucky Hank, Bob Odenkirk's AMC drama, replaces legal briefs with term papers.
Hank Devereaux (Better Call Saul alum) is the English department chairman at a fictional Pennsylvania college in Sunday's debut.
Hank mentally makes a grocery list while his pupils read their creative writing exercises.
The students notice, too—“Could you please, just for once, say something?”
one asks—so Hank mercilessly dissects Bartow's writing before ranting.
“The fact that you're here indicates you didn't strive very hard in high school,
or you showed very little promise,” he says, calling his school “mediocrity's capital.” Of course, one student is recording this.
Hank's outburst appears in the next day's school paper, but he's more concerned about his father's retirement,
a renowned literary researcher. Hank's wife Lily (Mireille Enos, The Killing) tries to talk to him over breakfast, but Hank continues getting texts about his diatribe.
